This occurs when a script responds to a HEAD request by returning no data but not setting a Content-Length header. Lighttpd inserts the Content-Length header based on the data received. In my opinion it would make more sense to omit the Content-Length header in the zero-length case as if the script intended a zero-byte Content-Length it would have specified that in the header.

Is there any plan to do anything with this patch? What good is it if people submit patches which are then ignored?
